Specialty Transport Teams
Neonatal Transport Team
The Neonatal Transport Team for the Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region is made up of Registered Nurses from the Neonatal Unit, Respiratory Therapists and EMT’s and/ or Paramedics. The service is available 24 hours a day and uses a dedicated ambulance for transport as well as a transport isolette. The ambulance is specifically equipped to hold the isolette, a ventilator, oxygen tanks and medical air tanks.
The Transport Team serves all of Southern Saskatchewan. Working with the hospital staff in other districts, the Neonatal Transport Team can assess a newborn, stabilize him/her and transport him/her to the Neonatal Unit at the Regina General Hospital. The Team has been operating since the late 1970’s.
